Developing deep knowledge of multimorbidity. Changing the view from ”producing” care of diseases
to ”meeting” a person with ”all-together-illness”. Developing methods and procedures based on this view
Since my PhD exam in 2005 my focus has been on the multimorbidity concept - to elucidate the phenomenon displaying the consequenses of this in primary care. This will be done through various research network dealing with
a) pain; b) elderly; c) health care system development.
Lately I have initiated a new research network: Multimorbidity, mainly in primary care.
Project title: Multimorbidity and its consequenses in primary care
Responsible for the project: Lennart Carlsson
Other researchers in the project: Interested members in research networks.
Date started: Jan 09, 2013 (ongoing)
Background: Multimorbidity is nowadays the norm within primary care. Although the organisation is fragmented.
Aim: To elucidate the phenomenon multimorbidity and to develop new knowledge and methods to handle patients in primary care more adequate.
Methods: Disseminate the point of view mainly in our research networks.
Results: A new research network on multimorbidity has been established.
Publication: Thesis about multimorbidity with three relevant articles included.
